Winemaker's Notes:

This Crianza is made from 100% Tinta de Toro (Tempranillo) grapes grown on some 50 hectares of vineyards (average age of 30 years) purchased specifically for the Sobreño project.

Grapes are hand picked, fermented in stainless steel tanks and aged for a total of 7 months in American oak barrels.

Intense dark red color. Blackberry, black cherry fruit on the nose, ripe and full flavored.

My Notes:

About Finca Sobreno:

In the early 90's, a group of Rioja winemakers became interested in Toro, convinced that top class wines could be made from the local Tempranillo clone known as Tinta de Toro. The combination of Rioja know-how, modern technology, strict attention to detail and fine old-vines plantings has led Bodegas Sobreño to almost instant success in Spain and on the international scene. Bodegas Sobreño was founded in 1998. Just 7 years later, Bodegas Sobreño has become one of the best-known wineries in the region.
